Developing Emotional Wisdom – through New Habits
Some proven habits to improve relationships:
Emotional wisdom, as we’ve come to understand it, reflects itself in the way people relate to others. In the case of ninety leaders, they used five key skills:
The ability to accept people as they are, not as you would like them to be.
The capacity to approach relationships and problems in terms of the present rather than the past
The ability to treat those who are close to you with the same courteous attention that you extend to strangers and casual acquaintances.
The ability to trust others, even if the risk seems great.
The ability to do without constant approval and recognition from others.
